Default Busybox Problem

I have rooted my M8, checked root run simple recovery operations like backups and don't seem to have any problems with my phone. Even my ISIS mobile wallet won't work because the device is rooted. But for some reason every time I try to install Busybox it fails. I've tried older versions different Busybox apps different storage locations and it just won't install. Sometimes it will download and automatically reboot my phone but the only thing that's different is one of my home screen s is changed around (apps missing). I just don't get it and am afraid to try and install a Rom or anything out of fear of screwing it up. The one thing I've tried that doesn't seem to work is the Xposed module for the Sense Toolbox which says it needs Busybox. I've been rooting for a while but would still consider myself somewhat of a noob. A y help would be greatly appreciated. Missing the simpler days of my Inspire and how easy everything was with that.

What method did you use to obtain root?

Have you verified root with any other apps?

You haven't hidden root by any chance, for instance in an attempt to make ISIS work?

One thing does come to mind, based on experience on one of my past devices:

I was having trouble getting Busybox to install on my old HTC Flyer. It was properly rooted, and couldn't find what else could be wrong.

I was trying the Stericson installer from the Play store (which is what I had usually one); but using the installer from JRummy did the trick.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ricson.busybox
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ybox.installer

Couldn't find any rhyme of reason for this, it just worked.

Used JRummys BBox installer.
All other apps that need root seem to work fine as long as they don't need BBox
Haven't tried to make ISIS work at all.
